Mark Hall had several troubles in his childhood, as he was diagnosed with dyslexia and with attention deficit disorder while he was in elementary school. Mark started his church work as a youth pastor to the First Baptist Church in Samson, Alabama, but he also served in other churches while at the Baptist College of Florida, where he studied music.
After graduation, Mark moved to Loganville, Georgia to work as the Minister of Music and Students at Center Hill Baptist Church. He started a youth band in each church he worked in as a way of involving students with music.
